' doug luzader watched sandy slam into rewhoboth beach. >> he joins us live with a look at the conditions there. good morning, doug, how's it going this morning? >>reporter: well, not exactly drenched and not really all that windy at the moment. it's certainly a lot better than we've seen. and you see cleanup vehicles out here, some people are kind of going about their business. that's good news. the one sure sign i guess that the hurricane is over, take a look out there, there are actually surfers in the water here as they take advantage of what still remains to be some pretty big waves here. obviously not the kind of wave action we saw yesterday and not the kind of tidal surge that we saw yesterday. all in all it seems like this part of delaware did okay. we'll have to see as the sun continues to rise and we spend some more time out on the streets to see if in fact things are getting back to normal. but it's a much different story when you head farther to the north, atlantic city and then, of course, new york city dealing with that 13-foot tidal surge. i mean, that's going to be an iss
's where we find a reporter live. doug, good morning. >> reporter: good morning guys. and look, look at this water that's just rushing into the board walk here, i walk out on to the beach, gives you an idea of just the force of this, you see this erosion sense here, look, its just been torn apart, this part of its just been mingled. that's tons of beach erosion all over the place. this is a real concern all up and downtown coast here. this area has been verdict evacuated, mandatory evacuation near the coast. this may be 50,000 people. once you start getting to those massive population centers north of here, we're talking obviously dc, but also when you get up to philadelphia and new york city, new england area, boston, all the sudden it gets very difficult to move those people out of harm's way quickly enough. now the wind speeds here are not terrible, maybe in the 15 to 20-mile an hour range, 25 miles an hour, something like that. once you get offshore, you're talking more like 40, 50 miles an hour. it's going to get worse through the course of the day. combining with high tides bec
for the big face off. doug luzader reports the race for the white house is tightening. >> reporter: this shows you what is at stake in the second debate. this is the real clear politics average of polls since the end of last year. you see a clear obama lead through most of that time. the big momentum shift happens right there after the first presidential debate about two weeks ago. we won't be hearing much from either of these guys today. both are deep in their debate preps. we did catch a glimpse of mitt romney yesterday heading off to church. president obama has been holed up in this luxury resort in virginia as his campaign predicted a much stronger performance than the last time around. >> what you will see from the president is a forceful, passionate and energetic tone that demonstrates the choice that we have in front of us. >> reporter: remember, the president who last time openly complained about debate preps and spent time sightseeing. >> it's a drag. [ laughter ] >> they are making me do my homework. >> reporter: now he appears more engaged and upbeat pausing to bring pizza to a loca
night. doug luzader has more. >> reporter: it may have had all the appearances of a high dollar fundraiser, but it's not often you see both mitt romney and the president working over the same room or saying things like this -- >> i had a lot more energy in our second debate. i was really rested after the long nap i had in the first debate. >> i've already seen early reports from tonight's dinner. headline, obama embraced by catholics. romney dines with rich people. >> reporter: all of this to raise about $5 million for catholic charities. the dinner has become an election year tradition and the two headliners really delivered, setting aside the noise of hundreds of millions of dollars of largely negative ads that are barraging swing states now. lighter moments can play big. president obama also sought out young voters with an appearance on john stewart's daily show yesterday, and ann romney courted women voters on "the view." last night's brief moments of peace may have been brokered by cardinal timothy dolan, they'll are be short lived. monday's debate won't be so pleasant. >>
the u.s. ambassador there. doug luzader is live. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the state department dropped something of a bombshell saying that they never thought that this attack on the u.s. consulate was part of a spontaneous protest. with the investigation into what happened at this compound in libya underway, there is now a clear rift between president obama and the u.s. state department. while many blamed the protests and discounted the idea that terrorists killed chris stevens, it's unclear what she was basing that on. the u.s. state department, that was not them. according to one official, that was not our conclusion. this as congress gets ready for some explosive hearings. >> what the state department bureaucracy distances itself from the liberal white house, you know the white house has a big problem. >> reporter: the white house denies there was a coverup. beyond that, more questions about security at the u.s. compound with documents showing well over 200 security-related incidents in the past 14 months. they will ask why the state department ignored some signs
in the cross hairs for the candidates. fox's doug luzader has the latest now from the campaign trail >> reporter: certainly seen this race tighten up considerably over just the past month. this is the average of polls. there's not much space between governor romney and president obama. romney has widened his lead a bit since yesterday and it has the president running to catch up. nothing matches the campaign tools a president has, air force one rolling up to a rally. later, the president running to the podium. >> are you fired up? [ applause ] >> reporter: after a marathon day, his voice was nearly gone. >> even though my voice is getting kind of hoarse, i've still got a spring in my step. >> reporter: the president even cast his vote early yesterday in chicago. with his poll numbers flagging, his campaign hopes early voters help lock down the lead he had weeks ago. the obama strategy involves women and young voters. the president referring to romney, "well, that's a b-ser, i can tell." if mitt romney feels good, he has reasons. his support from women continues to grow. one poll show
the president's lead in wisconsin in half. fox's doug luzader looks ahead to tonight. >>reporter: both vice presidential candidates are heading into tonight's debate with some new poll numbers. this is our brand new fox news poll. it shows that joe biden and paul ryan are pretty evenly matched, within the margin of error as far as their favorability numbers are concerned. but look at the unfavorables. that's where joe biden tonight has some ground to make up. paul ryan arrives in kentucky for his big night, swarmed by supporters. vice president joe biden is scheduled to arrive later today. this one on one between them is getting a lot of build because the stakes are so high after last week's obama/romney debate that may have turned this race on its head. president obama still stinging after what was seen as a weak performance, told abc's "world news" last night that biden just needs to be himself. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker, but his ideas are the wrong ones and joe understands that. >>reporter: while biden does have debate experie
in about an hour and a half. as doug luzader explains, it could have a big impact on the presidential race. >> reporter: this is the unemployment rate since president obama took office. it's been up and down, but all the focus today will be here at the very end, where it heads right before the election. for the white house, today's unemployment numbers probably confirm a cold reality, there just isn't much time left now for a major turnaround in the labor market before election day. the news from analysts may not be encouraging. >> we think the economy is going to be very sluggish as people sit back and wait to see how this fiscal cliff issue is dealt with by the new legislature and executive. >> reporter: that fiscal cliff is a combination of tax hikes and spending cuts due to hit at the end of the year after the election. the president coming off with what was widely seen as a lackluster debate performance, was in wisconsin yesterday with new found vigor. >> i want to export more products and outsource fewer jobs. >> reporter: that is a message he'll no doubt repeat at a campaign stop in
is stirring new controversy. fox's doug luzader with the story. >> reporter: we always look for a last minute wrinkle before each debate and this may be it. conservatives are talking up a video of the president in 2007, and something the obama campaign is responding to. >> everybody give an extraordinary welcome to my pastor, jeremiahia wright. >> reporter: then senator obama adopted an accent and make what some see as racially charged comments with hurricane katrina. >> tells me somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: conservatives already talking about what the president said and how he said it. >> i'm very surprised at the incredible southern accent, the president who was born in hawaii and lived in chicago. >> reporter: the obama campaign says this is an attempt to distract voters from the video of mitt romney, where he says 47% of the country feels entitled to benefits. both issues could come up at the debate tonight, which is supposed to focus on domestic issues. mitt romney took a break, making a stop for fast food. president obama also going

is tightening. as fox's doug luzader tells us, with four weeks to go before the election, both are coming out swunging on the campaign trail. >> reporter: 47 to 47, the race is locked up right now, at least according to gallup. the landscape is changing quickly. both campaigns are trying to take advantage. mitt romney may have had more spring in his step yesterday as he spoke to the virginia military institute. he went after what has been president obama's strong suit in many polls, foreign policy. and he spoke about last month's attack on the u.s. consulate in libya in a world he says is now more dangerous. >> this latest assault can be blamed on a video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, the administration has conceded these were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> reporter: the president spent much of his day preaching to the converted at california fundraisers. it helped pad his campaign coffers. he reminded his faithful that the race is extremely tight and right around the corner. >> so i need you in this election, the next 29

government romney spent a lot of time on the offensive. doug luzader takes a closer look. >> reporter: they sat down at the table last night with the same ultimate goal in mind, and that is, of course, winning come november 6th. they have two different strategies to get there. >> this debate begins as they do, with a handshake. as they headed to their seats, they had different objectives. romney, to preserve his momentum, the president to get some back. when romney questioned cuts to the navy, a critical issue in the battleground state of virginia, the president delivered what his supporters think was the line of the night. >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changeed. >> reporter: we the split screen may have told the story, with the president not stepping down and this time, it was morally a glare. while the focus was on foreign policy with questions like russia, israel and libya, romney made a pivot to the weak economy. >> amermust lead and for that to hap
